Turned Twenty-Two Today...

...but it's just another year honestly. For birthday presents I've gathered a good bunch of paints and things - sort of a June Wishlist
  • One or two boxes of Zvezda Winged Hussars. Almost two years into painting, these shall be classified as a test to see how far I came - a masterwork?
  • Matte varnish - not necessarily enamel.
  • Vallejo inks, Red, Black and Pale for the above plus probably a Buff color.
  • Revell Leather Brown and metallic silver. Perhaps I'll just buy Vallejo instead of these two so I don't have to go to multiple places to collect my order.
As you can see I still require a high amount of paints. The hobby store silver does not highlight the Vallejo gunmetal well enough and I've become slighlty annoyed by its lid anyway - it doesn't want to open and I have to force it every time. Imagine all that while painting something as well clad as a Polish Hussar.

  8. happy birthday! 4 years older than me aye? so when the others make you feel too young just remember that I am 4 years worse off well 3 1/2 years worse off.

    still happy birthday, one year older one year wiser (apparently) and I wish you many more. (I think that's the right expression)
